Discussion #2: Doing Your Part

If you haven’t listened to my Greek Chorus from this morning, give it a whirl.

Wednesday, I posted a chicken recipe,  and then later that night I learned that chicken production around the world is suffering from avian flu outbreaks. Global production is falling in Asia and Europe. Chicken in Hawaii is nearing 9$ a pound.

So I wonder… Will we all do our part to not eat as much or any chicken for a while if need be? Would you stop eating tomatoes out of season? Where does everyone draw the line as a home cook or as a diner? Do you eat giant blue fin tuna anymore?

My friend Alexandra Cousteau likens that act to eating a tiger. Point being, this isn’t new for diners.

Over the years, what sacrifices have YOU made for the greater good?
